Surface Report:

The high-scoring M. Chinnaswamy Stadium surface in Bengaluru is well-known for favoring batsmen. Bowlers may need to use slower deliveries and off-cutters to control the run rate, as bowlers may find it difficult to receive assistance from the pitch. At this location, the first innings score is often 265; New Zealand recently defeated Pakistan with a massive 401-6. Expect another high-scoring match as Australia scored 367 against Pakistan earlier in the match.
